background checks. so what is pretty clear is the nra represents gun manufacturers. they use their membership to kind of create this mythology of political force, but in fact they really don't elect or defeat people. but they do affect what happens in congress. and i think the armor that they have put up there is about -- is showing a lot of chinks right now. >> congressman yarmuth, thank you for joining us, and thank you for breaking your silence on this. >> again, i don't think i have that much courage, i recognize over the weekend, one of the problems is we have a tragedy like this. people talk as long as the news cycle lasts. and then as the news cycle stops, we stop beating the dream drums, we need to take steps to meani meaningfully stop gun violence, as long as we keep beating the drums, we'll have an impact. >> well, we're going to help you, thank you. >> thank you, lawrence. >>> joining me now, msnbc's joy reed, there is a kentucky democrat, the only kentucky democrat in congress. he won with a 29% margin, defying the nra, even before tonig tonight. defying the nra in kentucky. they

't talk about any specific pieces of evidence. >> shepard: all right. to the story that got us here and that is this idea of a motive. it's my understanding from the reporting and from this source at foxnews.com that the reason they think this might be a motive is that he had heard that his mother loved that school where she was volunteering maybe more than she loved him. and that's why he would target her and then that school. >> the story says that the kids that were killed were all first graders. the kids that his mother was spending the most time with when she was volunteering there, according to the report, he was very, very angry about that. and also very angry about the possibility that she might try to have him committed to a psychiatric institution. >> shepard: wow. more funerals today as a result of his actions. >> yeah. two funerals today and two more funerals today, all of them for six-year-old kids and the two funerals this morning and this afternoon were back to back at the saint rose of lima church. the first was for james mattioli, six-year-old boy whose family says

a few more of the 20 small children and 6 educators taken from us will be laid to rest. we may never know all the reasons why this tragedy happened. we do know that every day since more americans are died of gun violence. we know such violence has terrible consequences for our society. if there is even one thing that we can do to prevent any of these events, we have a deep obligation, all of us, to try. over these past five days, a discussion has re-emerged as to what we might do not only to deter mass shootings in the future but to reduce the epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country every single day. it's encouraging that people of all different backgrounds and beliefs and political persuasions are willing to challenge old assumptions and change long-standing positions. that conversation has to continue, but this time the words need to lead to action. we know this is a complex issue that stirs deeply held passions and political divides, and as i said on sunday night, there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. we're going
